Summertime and the livin’ is easy! We hope you’re just as excited as we are about the arrival of summer next month. What’s not to love? The days get longer, the weather is warm, there are tons of outdoor activities as well as exciting places indoors to beat the Kansas City heat. Really, there’s nothing to complain about.

Living in Kansas City makes summer even better; there’s always something happening whether it’s an outdoor festival or a concert to attend. With so many exciting events happening over the next few months, you’ll want to book chauffeured transportation to some to make the event even more magical.

But which events should you book chauffeured transportation for? We’ve got you covered. Sit back and imagine what your summer will look like while we share 3 summer events you’ll want to book chauffeured transportation for!

Summer Concerts

The music scene is Kansas City has always been one of the best things about our beautiful city. With incredible venues like the Sprint Center and Starlight Theatre, there are plenty of upcoming concerts to fill your summer nights. Here are just a few upcoming summer concerts:

Train and Goo Goo Dolls – June 21, Starlight Theatre

With a lineup like the above, this summer is sure to be one to remember. Concerts are of course made better when accompanied by friends that can help you sing backup all night. What’s even better than attending a concert with friends is booking special event transportation to and from the venue! You and your entourage can enjoy the time leading up to the concert and after the final encore with a ride through Overland – we’ll have you arriving and departing in true VIP style and will keep the vehicle you book stocked full of cool beverages and have the air conditioning running so you can beat that summer heat (and cool down after singing along all evening).

Summer Festivals

Three words – outdoors, drinks and food. Of course when those three words are combined it can only mean one thing: outdoor festivals, one of the most exciting events in the summertime in Kansas City. With upcoming summer festivals like KC Brewfest, The Strawberry Festival, and Old Shawnee Days, there’s no reason not to get outside and enjoy sweet summertime.

While summer festivals offer great company and delicious eats, they usually require a lot of walking. Walking in the hot, summer Kansas City heat is sure to make you exhausted and sweaty and the last thing you want to do is walk even longer to find your car following the festival. To save yourself some time and hydration, let Overland be your ride to and from all summer festivals. Our air conditioner will be running so the vehicle’s interior will be a refreshing temperature and we’ll keep bottles of water on ice for you (we can also offer other beverages upon request). We’ll also save you some time by dropping you off and picking you up as close to the entrance of the festival as possible. Less walking in the summer heat equals less blisters and more fun to be had! So go ahead – walk all around The Strawberry Festival, KC Brewfest and Old Shawnee Days and relax knowing you won’t have to worry about finding your vehicle following the event.

Summer Weddings

It doesn’t matter if you grew up in Missouri or have only visited once during summer, but everyone can agree that our summers are H-O-T! Add in that hot midwestern sun and mix it with humidity and you’ve got a recipe for a sweaty summer season.

Summer wedding ceremonies typically take place outdoors when the sun starts to set followed by a reception under the stars. While summer nights in KCMO are usually comfortable and beautiful, there are some nights that are scorching hot. If you’re planning a summer or early fall wedding and haven’t yet considered the need for chauffeured transportation, you’ll definitely want to to ensure your guests are comfortable. Booking wedding transportation for your guests keeps them safe and cool. They’re able to beat the summer heat by being chauffeured to your ceremony and reception in a luxurious vehicle equipped with air conditioning and chilled beverages. Getting into an air conditioned vehicle following a sizzling night of tearing up the dance floor is one of the most refreshing feelings and a kind gesture that your guests will never forget!
